This way Rolston and Axe still get to play together on the 3rd line and continue their tandem from last season.
Great plan. I'd have Hilbert in the mix w/ Bergeron and Zinovjev... but with his groin injury it makes sense to start him in Providence, so I can see why you left him out. Bring him up in 10 games if we need to send Bergeron back to the Q.
